    someone responded to my friend's fb post asking for ideas on how to work toward reclaiming and/or rewilding the one million golf courses that take up over half of our city's greenspace with 'nationalise the land!', and when they said 'yes! how?' he responded with 'Good question.' and then an apparently earnest answer that first we'll need a socialist workers' govt, so we need to start establishing a revolutionary movement & party. dude!! this is a post about reclaiming or establishing common land by hook or by crook, you do not need to convert people here, a good example of 'organising around shared demands' as you suggest would be literally the thing that is happening in the comments around you - with concrete ideas of who to reach out to and how to start, unlike yr comment where the issue at hand seems like a total afterthought.

    He meant well, we're on the same sides of the issue and probably most of the ones I think are important, I don't know the guy, maybe I'm missing something he was trying to say, I am guilty of worse high-handedness. Argh, though.

    This feels very petty and shallow compared to everything else that's going on in the world right now, but everything else going on is something I can take action about, at least in some small way. Donate. March. Make masks and wash hands. Boycott or support. Speak out. Small things, but things.

    Right now my most frustrating problem is that I'm writing fanfiction for what is apparently a fandom of four people, and I'm the only one writing for it right now. I have two fics for it, the only two fics on ao3, both of which are averaging about 4 views per chapter. I loved the book and am having more fun writing fic for it than I have writing for any fandom in a long, long time, but I'm writing for a nearly nonexistent audience.

    The fact that some people decide that the best way of fighting the erasure of transwomen and other transfeminine people from queer history is to attempt to erase drag queens from queer history instead. These are not mutually exclusive!

    Wormwitch I'm literally Mulder.

    My father told me he tried to log into my old twitter account, because he claimed twitter keeps kicking him off for no reason. Maybe if he stopped posting right wing conspiracy theory bullshit he wouldn’t have this problem.

    I honestly don’t understand why he thought it was ok to try to guess my password so he could use my account?! It’s like he has no idea what’s socially acceptable anymore.

    I'm not used to wearing a face mask and the air inside gets very hot and stuffy and makes it feel hard to breathe. I know it'll be a lot harder to breathe if I DON'T wear the thing, but still.

    Also, a site I'm trying to order some stuff on is telling me my address is incomplete because I haven't selected an option on a menu which only lists "none" as an option and the helpdesk haven't got back to me all day.

    Two OCs I have who, despite existing for months, still don't have a character design. Whenever I want to play around and visualize my Whole Cast Of Characters they're just like, two vaguely humanoid blob shadows. Can y'all hurry up and like, figure out a haircut and a body type and an article of clothing you like, please.

    Every recipe blog site ever hiding content behind a million shitty popups; no Karen, this doesn't make me want your content more. It makes me swear profusely and hit the back button.

    this and long personal anecdotes or such about the dish. especially if not related. i do not actually care about your little stories. i just want your recipe and i might even just want the ratios of ingredients you used. if i want the history of yakisoba i can look up the history of yakisoba some other time.

    "[Dish] is from [place] and usually contains [ingredients]"

    That's nice Karen, I know what Jambalaya is, I want to know how to make it.

    I've seen some sites that'll have two goddamn paragraphs dedicated to the history of whatever when I just want to know how to not ruin my roux.

    A commenter thinks I'm being offensive by saying a scene in a book in which university-age characters discuss being given stickers in class comes across like the book was written by a kid. No, commenter, I am certain that they don't give adults stickers for grades in Japan either, kawaii culture aside, and nothing about the book gives the impression its writer is any more Japanese than I am, and even if the writer's an adult who's never been to college in any country, they've surely left kindergarten. Even if, hypothetically, some college somewhere does do this, throwing it in like it isn't unusual in any way comes across as very odd.
